This New Watch from Cartier’s Master Watchmaker Is Clearly Revolutionary

Given the level of recognition that Carole Forestier-Kasapi—Cartier’s head of movement creation—has achieved with her flying tourbillons and watches that mimic the brand’s famous see-through mystery clocks, it was only a matter of time before the master watchmaker combined the two concepts in a single timepiece. The Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astromystérieux (cartier.us) uses four separate transparent sapphire disks and an elaborate ball-bearing carriage system not just to rotate the movement once an hour without any visible support, but also to wind thebarrel and set the time. The watch, which has a palladium case, is priced at $181,000, and production is limited to just 100 examples worldwide.
